At last there is a density meter which can measure all of your petroleum samples, including crude oil, intermediate products, asphalt, liquefied petroleum gas and high-viscosity liquids: the new DMA 4200 M. This new instrument extends the renowned DMA M range of density meters from Anton Paar and builds on almost 50 years of experience in density measurement.
Using DMA 4200 M means that tedious, manual and time-intensive measurement with pycnometers or hydrometers is a thing of the past. Filling of even viscous samples is simplified and only 2 mL of sample is needed. After measurement, instead of laborious, solvent-intensive cleaning routines with pycnometers and hydrometers, you just quickly clean the DMA 4200 M sample cell with only a small amount of solvent.
All calculations are done for you, there is no need to look up API tables and work out the temperature compensation. This enhances lab productivity while minimizing human error and environmental influences.
DMA 4200 M is a versatile instrument that can be used for a multitude of tasks at multiple locations throughout the petroleum-refining process. Application areas include offshore laboratories, refineries and research and development establishments.
